Fire dance, Rajasthan


Dont worry, she is not on fire! This is the fire dance – famous Rajasthani folk from the desert region. And I came across this one in Jaipur at a place called chokhi dhani. Its remarkable to see these dancers balance that ball of fire overhead and perform swift movements at the same time.

It was not difficult for such a poised dancer to make one feel that the fire was an extension of her own body. She was totally one with it.
